Abstract:

The report identifies present and projected logistic support requirements for response to oil spills in the arctic and sub-arctic regions of Alaska. Area response is based on estimates of the most probable course of petroleum development within the state. The present logistic support capability of the U.S. Coast Guard, military organizations, other federal agencies and private industry is identified and compared to future response requirements. A set of guidelines was used to assess the response requirements in various environmental settings moving pack ice, open water, tundra, etc.. The guidelines included the number of personnel and amount of equipment to be transported, time on scene, and initial response time. Fourteen selected sites were evaluated.
